SCRATCHY: Yo, boss dude! You wanted to see me?
Evil Squirrel does not respond, perhaps possessed by Mr. Fox….
SCRATCHY: HEY! Earth to Squirrel Dude! Should I send you up a drink, Major Tom?
EVIL SQUIRREL: Oh, sorry, I didn’t hear you come in because….
SCRATCHY: Seriously? You’re listening to that Kevin Paige shit again? I can’t believe you got me to waste a DVA playing those two loser songs….
EVIL: Like Kevin Paige, I can do anything I want!
SCRATCHY: Well, feel free to shut me out then. I’ve got important mixes to make for my gig at da club tonight, so if you don’t mind….
EVIL: Hold it! I summoned you to my office for a very important announcement!
SCRATCHY: Lovely, now you sound like Shadow shilling the Contest of Whatever every February.
EVIL: This will be even bigger than the Contest of Whatever!
SCRATCHY: Buster in a cage match with Zeeba and Ninja on a Skateboard? Hey, seriously, dude, make that happen!
EVIL: I’m pre-empting your Dusty Vinyl Archive feature on Mondays for my latest Top 30 countdown!
SCRATCHY: Are you shitting me? Man, I was forced to play enough of your tone deaf selection in last year’s countdown! Sorry, dude, but….
EVIL: This is going to be my best countdown ever, because I’m letting the slaves…. er, shelf critters pick all of the songs for me! What do you think of that, Miss Deejay?
SCRATCHY: I think you should get your hand off of my back before I start some drama. You ain’t my man, boy!
EVIL: It will be a huge hit! Each critter picking a song to go with their vibrant and engaging personalities I infuse in them!
SCRATCHY: Most of them wouldn’t know good music if I stuffed it down their throats and it tooted out of their asses! Nobody is going to want to listen to a bunch of songs picked by critters made out of recycled briefs and toilets!
SPONKIE 1: Aunt Scratchy! Is everything OK?
SPONKIE 2: We heard the big boss wanted to see you.
SPONKIE 1: Yeah, and usually Troll has to limp after he’s paid a visit to the head honcho!
SCRATCHY: You know what this bozo wants to do? He wants to replace our super cool DVA with some lame Top 30 countdown of songs picked by the shelf critters!
SPONKIE 2: That sounds SO AWESOME!!!
SPONKIE 1: Come on, Sis! Let’s start asking everyone what they want to hear!!!!
SCRATCHY: Grrrrrrr….. betrayed by my own apprentices!
EVIL: There, there, Scratchy…. you’ll learn to like your new role. You’ll even get to pick your own song!
SCRATCHY: How about Cee Lo Green’s “Fuck You?”
EVIL: Not bad…. it might even make the middle tier!
SCRATCHY: I was being sarcastic, you….
SCRATCHY: Don’t hand me no lines, and keep your hands to yourself!!!!
Yes, DJ Scratchy will have to put the lock back on the Dusty Vinyl Archive for seven months while The Nest rolls out its newest and most unique countdown yet… The Top 30 Shelf Critter Request Songs!
So how will this work? It’s all
First, no song I’ve ever played in any Monday Muzak feature or countdown will be eligible…
I chose 30 of my prominent and somewhat prominent members of the SCT cast, and picked a song that in some way relates to their personas.
All of the chosen songs have to be songs I at least somewhat like…
And I did my best to add some variety to the countdown! Although there will be plenty of 70’s and 80’s songs, I managed to secure at least one from every decade from the 1950’s through the 2010’s!
The 30 songs I settled on (Yeah right, I already made one huge change within hours after finalizing the list yesterday morning) were then ranked by how much I like them, with a few tweaks to break up any decade blocks, and will be presented every Monday beginning with #30 on August 2, and ending with the #1 SCT Request Song on February 21, 2022!
But The Nest will make the ride through the countdown as entertaining as possible! I’m sure you’ll find some songs to cheer, songs to jeer, and songs maybe even some you’ve never heard of before. And there may even be a treat for you each week…
Join The Nest beginning this coming Monday for the Top 30 Shelf Critter Request Countdown!!!!
